Russia and the United States have tentatively agreed to a weapons inspection program that would allow Russians to visit nuclear sites in America to count missiles and warheads. The plan, which Fox News has learned was agreed to in principle during negotiations, would constitute the most intrusive weapons inspection program the U.S. has ever accepted.
Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who met with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, said publicly Tuesday that the two nations have made "considerable" progress toward reaching agreement on a new strategic arms treaty. The 1991 Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, or START, expires in December and negotiators have been racing to reach agreement on a successor. Clinton said the U.S. would be as transparent as possible. "We want to ensure that every question that the Russian military or Russian government asks is answered," she said, calling missile defense "another area for deep cooperation between our countries." On another critical issue, Lavrov declared that it would be counterproductive to threaten Iran with more sanctions over its nuclear program -- as he resisted efforts by Clinton to win agreement for tougher measures should Iran fail to prove its program is peaceful. Clinton visited Moscow on her first trip since becoming America's top diplomat, in an effort to gauge Moscow's willingness to join the U.S. in imposing sanctions. Clinton said the U.S. agreed it was important to pursue diplomacy with Iran. "At the same time that we are very vigorously pursuing this track, we are aware that we might not be as successful as we need to be, so we have always looked at the potential of sanctions in the event we are not successful and cannot assure ourselves and others that Iran has decided not to pursue nuclear weapons," she said at a joint news conference.

Hillary opens the kimono ... that’s wrong on so many levels ...
Our President is such a wuss.
this is TREASON
That concept is so mind deranging you should be tossed off this sight just for giving us that mental picture. LOL!
I wonder just what it is they have imagined they will gain for it? What is worth selling out your own nation?
I can't even comprehend the level of mental and moral perversion required to get there.
Anything about us visiting their sites?
I’m in the middle of reading “In Reagan’s Own Hand”....a lot about the Salt I & II stuff prior to his Presidency....it’s downright scary what is going on here...!!! The Russians must have something on Obomba....or HE REALLY IS A MOLE!
i guess it would be fair for our other adversaries such as iran, taliban, and al quaeda to tag along, right? — </sarcasm>
And the Russians are going to offer reciprocity... I will believe it when I see it!
Cute - but I missed the part where it says we will also inspect theirs...
but at least, the Ruskies will know where everything is
This makes as much sense as inviting a grizzly bear to your house for supper. Or a Russian bear.
“Ah yes, Vlad, be sure your people bring their GPS. We want to be as helpful as we can.” Your bud Barack...

Oh screw it. You’re dead America. You get what you deserve, morons.
